David Silva revealed his delight after Manchester City's recent signing of Jesus Navas from Sevilla.

The Liga outfit, who finished ninth in the Spanish top division last season, confirmed the transfer of the 27-year-old to City on Monday, before the player himself revealed that talks had been ongoing for months.

Speaking at Spain's pre-Confederations Cup camp in Miami, Silva believes the winger is ready to adapt to life in the Premier League after sealing a transfer estimated to be worth around €24 million.

"Navas is at a mature age now and I am very happy to have him as a team-mate," the midfielder told reporters.

The former Valencia man also says he is sure that his international colleague will be a hit at the Etihad and is excited by the possibility of playing alongside him next season.

"He [Navas] is a great player and he will be very good for us," Silva continued.
